Hello Lighthouse: 09/08/18

Hello Lighthouse

Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall is a picture book about a lighthouse's last keeper. The book opens with the keeper arriving and ends with the keeper, his wife and their child leaving as the automatic lighting system is installed.

Sophie Blackall, an author illustrator out of Sydney, Australia, I primarily know through her illustrations of children's books: Polly Horvath's Mr. and Mrs. Bunny books, Big Red Lollipop, and the unfortunately conceived A Fine Dessert. Most readers, though, will probably recognize her work from the Ivy & Bean series.

Hello Lighthouse with it's cutaways of the interior of the building as well as the exteriors over the course of different seasons and different weather conditions has for me the type of story, albeit condensed into forty-eight pages, that I was hoping for in The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman.

Five stars
